If you know me, which I'm sure you don't...considering I DON'T EVEN KNOW MY SELF.

Just joking.

If you know me, I love space. How can you not love space? This is going to sound like I'm writing this stoned, but if my boss is reading this I'm not. Space is huge, like ridiculously huge. We on the other hand...very tiny. Smaller than polly-pocket, or insert ex-bf joke here. For instance, it would take 1.3 million earths to fill up the sun. 

That's not anything. If you want to have a full on existential crisis watch this video:

And you thought Uranus was big...hardy har har.

Now to the reason for this post. At first I didn't watch the full video and thought this was about going to Mars. Don't judge me, I only have so much time to find blog stuff. I'm a very busy man.

I'm a liar.

Apparently we aren't going to Mars yet, because we need to make a rest stop at the Moon (again). I know right? OH great! The Moon, so what! We've already been there!." Why can't we just go to Mars already!

Looks like we're going back to the Moon because there is ice, and it will be easier for us to ...well, I'll let the smart people explain...
